On February 7th 2020, I placed an order with Nordstrom for some Hair Care and Perfumes.
It might look like a lot, but I actually purchased only x8 items (x3 full-size hair care items – x3 travel-size hair care items – x2 travel-size perfumes) and the rest were all gifts with purchase (deluxe samples).
The total was $336 (tack on an additional $30 for tax) which was around KD 111, not including Aramex shipping fees.
I didn’t know it at the time, but this was going to be my last online order for a good long while.
Get a Free Gift with your $85 Hair Care purchase. Find your next Hair Care favorites with samples from Drybar, slip for beauty sleep, Briogeo and more. $87 Value.
So. Much. Yes.
For whatever reason, I’ve never even glanced at the Hair Care section on the Nordstrom website, up until the weather became too hot to order Perfume and Makeup. That said, I’ve always lusted after the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray (possibly for decades), but just never knew how to get my hands on that stuff. I found it, along with a whole bunch of other interesting Hair Care products over at Nordstrom. The more I browsed, the more stuff I lusted after! Hair Care was quickly shaping up to be my newest obsession!
Other than Bumble and Bumble, they also had DevaCurl (another “Curly Girl Method” approved brand) and Living Proof and Drybar and R+Co (hella’ cute packaging!) and Oribe (the one everyone seem to lose their minds over) and Alterna and so much more! I kinda’ wanted… everything! To be fair though, I’d gotten gotten samples from most of those brands at one point or another (mostly from Nordstrom), but Hair Care hadn’t really been on my radar, at that point in time. However, once they came out with this Hair Care Sample Pack for the month of June, with the pre-requisite of purchasing $85 worth of Hair Care to qualify, I jumped on that deal! It was kismet!
The Sample Pack contained several Hair Care samples of stuff that I actually wanted to try! In fact, the full sizes of many of those samples were already in my online shopping cart, including the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray! Now that I could try out the samples first, I quickly deleted the fuller sizes from my shopping cart. Honestly, the Hair Care Sample Pack could not have come at a better time! Again, I just love Nordstrom!
Unfortunately, once again, something had leaked all over everything while in-transit, but that’s okay because… Hair Care Samples, yaaaay!
